    COuld this be a zoom setting in the slideshow module. Go into your module manager to check..

    I think you need to crop the images to the right size before uploading. It's how i did mine.

    I resize images to the correct width and then crop them to the height needed.

    I normally have to redo the crop a few times to frame the image to something that looks OK.

    If you just resize, then the final image ususally doesn't look very professional

    regards

    If it is a image cropping issue using your favorite image editor...

    Resize using the a 'locked ratio' (or a diaginal drag) to the size you want, can only do this a certain amount before making the image look awful

    and/or

    using the when using the selection/crop box type in the relavent size and just drag the selection/crop box around until you find a selection you like.

    Open your image in your fav image editor. Using a fixed ratio crop, crop a section of your image to your liking. Copy and paste to a new image and then resize.
